Discussion at Brookings Café is a potpourri of topics around a table where anybody can join in the discussion. This show represents a place where the community of Brookings and the surrounding areas can discuss what concerns us as coastal residents.

In this edition of Discussion at Brookings Café, regulars Ray Gary and Dan Sherman talk with Scott Thiemann about the Master Gardener program, invasive species, and a handful of other plant topics. From nasturtiums to blackberries and begonias we, discuss the coastal phenomenon, the advance of plant species that are not native to this area, and what that means to us. This discussion answers a lot of common questions because we asked a lot of stupid questions. Join us for an informal look at what’s growing in your backyard … and invading your living room.

Brookings Café … a discussion about what’s important to you.
